Kawhi Leonard dunk on Mike Miller Heat-Spurs Game 6

Kawai Leonard takes off with two feet and dunks all over Mike Miller while slapping him in the face.
Kawhi Leonard (/kəˈw/, born June 29, 1991) is an American professional basketball player who currently plays for the San Antonio Spurs of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He was drafted 15th overall in the 2011 NBA Draft by the Indiana Pacers, but was traded to the San Antonio Spurs shortly thereafter, along with the rights to Erazem Lorbek and the 42nd overall pick Davis Bertans in exchange for George Hill.[10] Leonard signed with the Spurs just after the NBA lockout had ended.[11]
After starting shooting guard Manu Ginobili broke his hand in early January, Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich named Leonard the tentative starter in Ginobili's absence.[12]Leonard and teammate Tiago Splitter were selected to play in the 2012 Rising Stars Challenge as members of Team Chuck. Although he suited for the event, he did not play due to a calf strain.[13] With Richard Jefferson traded to the Golden State Warriors for Stephen Jackson, Leonard was promoted to the starting small forward position, while Jackson served as his backup.
In his first year Leonard placed fourth in Rookie of the Year voting, receiving 47 votes,[14] and was named to the NBA's 2011–12 All-Rookie First Team.[
